    Destabilizing amyloid fibrils

    Computation analysis identifies six main regions in amyloid proteins that are responsible for their aggregate formation and shows that mutating certain residues can destabilize these amyloid fibers.

    ß-clamp structure from an extremophile

    The crystal structure of the DNA polymerase III beta subunit from Deinococcus radiodurans sheds light on the mechanisms of efficient DNA metabolism that enable this bacterium to survive high doses of radiation.

    Leishmania enzyme structure

    The crystal structure of nucleoside diphosphate kinase from the parasite L. braziliensis provides reveals a partially unfolded C-terminus that could serve as a potential target for drug therapies.

Scope

BMC Structural Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on investigations into the structure of biological macromolecules, including solving structures, structural and functional analyses, and computational modeling.

BMC Structural Biology is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.

Section Editor's profile

Dr Ramsland

Dr Ramsland is currently the Sir Zelman Cowen Fellow and a Group Leader in the Centre for Immunology at the Burnet Institute (Melbourne, Australia). His research examines the diverse structural roles of carbohydrates and glycoproteins in immunity and infection (Structural Glycobiology) using crystallography, computational modelling, automated docking and solution scattering techniques. He has over 90 scientific publications including primary research papers, reviews/chapters and has recently co-edited a book on Structural Glycobiology.

"Together with Dr Cy Jeffries, Deputy Section Editor, I am pleased to be involved in guiding the development of the Small-Angle Scattering section of BMC Structural Biology. This new section incorporates all aspects of the structural analysis of biological macromolecules using techniques in small-angle scattering including but not limited to: studies incorporating substantial analysis by small-angle X-ray scattering and/or neutron scattering."
